Paula Tarr, Registered MBACP - Help And Support For Women
I offer phone or video sessions, where I work empathically with women and women's issues. I have an understanding of the pressures and influences on women today and the need to find somewhere safe to open up and talk through concerns.
I focus on any problems you may be having in your relationships. We will explore any repeating patterns, misunderstandings or even emotional abuse that keep showing up for you.
I also work with women who are experiencing low mood, feelings of anxiety and depression, stress, feeling totally overwhelmed by life and have low self-esteem.
We will work together on achieving having a healthy sense of yourself, along with healthy relationships with others. We will look at establishing manageable boundaries both in the workplace, at home and in your personal relationships.
I offer a private conversation to bring feelings around being overwhelmed by external pressures, along with the need to meet the expectations placed on you by others and any unrealistic expectations you may have for yourself
My aim is for you to feel heard and understood in a non-judgemental way.
I am a professionally trained BACP Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor. I adapt my approach to suit the needs of each individual client, while we explore your personal history, your family history and any patterns which are no longer working for you.
I also work with grief and bereavement and have experience working in cancer care.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Concessions offered for
Talk Things Through Counselling
I offer Phone and Skype sessions. I find these sessions are just as effective as face to face, finding some clients prefer not having to visit consulting rooms, as they do not have to travel to talk to me.
